Questions about future reproductive concerns are often overlooked at the time of a cancer diagnosis...but this is exactly the time they should be addressed.
REhope, a fertility preservation program for oncology patients, is available to help patients and their parents understand how the diagnosis and recommended treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiation may affect the chance of infertility in the future. Close coordination between the cancer treatment team and the CMC Center for Reproductive Medicine at CMC Women's Institute allows for the opportunity to address reproductive concerns and if needed, have a unique fertility preservation plan integrated into the cancer treatment regimen.
A variety of options exist for preserving family-building opportunities; our team of specialists is dedicated to improving the chances for future pregnancy and providing information to patients and their parents.
- Evaluate the impact of the specific cancer treatment on future fertility.
- Assess reproductive potential before and after treatment.
- Discuss fertility preservation options.
- Review future pregnancy risks.
- Assess risk to offspring for genetically transmitted cancers.
- Consider alternative options for family building.
